This Devotional - Warm Regards, is full of Elvie Guthrie-Lewis' life stories. As her friends, we recognize ourselves in some of her writing; and in what she writes, we are further blessed by the words she has chosen to tell our stories. Our stories: our successes, and even some of our sorrows, are being used to glorify our Lord and Savior. What a blessing. What a joy. What an honor. Each meditative story concludes with Words of Love. As you read, you can imagine what Jesus is trying to say to each of us, what He is trying to teach us in His loving, contemplative way. There is no judgment, just stories to which we can each relate; stories that will warm our hearts; stories that will nurture us, and encourage us, as we grow in our faith. Elvie Guthrie-Lewis was born to Maurice and Ernestine Guthrie, on the beautiful Island of Jamaica, in the West Indies. She is the last of four children. At an early age, Elvie dreamed of becoming a teacher and a writer. She was an avid reader as a child, and even had her bungalow designed for writing, like some writers she had read about. She achieved her first goal to become a teacher, when she graduated from Shortwood Teachers' College in 1970. Elvie taught at the high school level for eight and a half years and spent two and a half years with the Jamaican Movement for the Advancement of Literacy (JAMAL) as a teacher trainer. Elvie immigrated to the United States in 1982 to advance her studies, and earned BS Degrees in Nutrition and Dietetics, and Institution Management. She went on to earn a MS Degree in Education; all from Alcorn State University. Elvie is a Registered Dietitian, a Certified Public Manager, an Alumni of the South Central Public Health Leadership Institute (Tulane University), and the Rotary Leadership Academy. She is married to Felton Lewis of New Orleans, and they live in Mississippi.
